REVIEWS

Praise for The Devil's Other Storybook

"Begging to be quoted, to be read aloud, to be told, these wise tales should delight readers and listeners alike." --Pointer, Kirkus Reviews

"Depicted more as a scamp or scalawag, the Devil is a source of mischief and provides more opportunities to laugh than to weep. . .Told in a pleasing, conversational style, the stories have an originality and a humor that will appeal to all ages." --Starred, The Horn Book

"Babbitt's style is as clean and elegant as ever. A choice morsel to be savored with tongue in cheek." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This book is a pleasure to look at, to hold, and to read." --Starred, School Library Journal

"Rejoice! Here are ten more stories about the Devil to add to Babbitt's wonderful first collection." --Pointer, Kirkus Reviews

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  • Natalie Babbitt; Pictures by the author

  • A gifted artist and writer, Natalie Babbitt’s novels are inspired by a brilliance and imagination that is completely original. She began her career in 1966 with the publication of a picture book, The Forty-Ninth Magician, a collaboration with her husband, Samuel Fisher Babbitt. Her first novel, The Search for Delicious, established her gift for writing magical tales with a more profound meaning embedded within them.  Kneeknock Rise earned her a Newbery Honor Medal, but it is Tuck Everlasting which has insured Babbitt’s place in the history of children’s literature. 

    Babbitt has written six more novels including The Eyes of the Amaryllis and Goody Hall—each one presenting her unique vision of an enchanted world. Her latest novel, Jack Plank Tells Tales, was published in Spring 2007.

    Natalie Babbitt lives in Providence, Rhode Island, and is a grandmother of three. When asked what she wants readers to remember about her books, she replied, “the questions without answers.”
